7:31am
we'll talk about it coming up with the forecast details. >> thank you, john. things heat up in one of the most famous cold cases. police in roseville michigan followed up on a tip this week that could lead them to the remains of jimmy hoffa. we have more on what led to the dig and whether it will unearth the body of the formers testers boss. >> what unfolded outside a detroit home was either a bad tip or a real tipping.in the search for jimmy hoffa. the teamsters leader hasn't been seen since july 30th, 1975. he's presumed dead but his body has never been found. then last month a tipster who said he was afraid to speak out before, told police he saw someone buried here long ago. >> he believes because he states his body was intered. it was a day after mr. hoffa disappeared. >> police say the tipster seemed credible because he didn't try to embellish the story. an initial scan shows something
7:32am
under the concrete, but it's not clear just what. >> it could be a dead body. if not hoffa, then somebody el. or it doub root of a tree. who knows. >> police drilled for two soil samples which will be analyzed by michigan state university to see if they show human remains. it would take further dna testing to determine if they're hoffa's remains. police doubt the mystery is solved. >> i don't think it's mr. hoffa. it would be great if it was. it would bring closure to his family and the hundreds of thousands of teamsters that idolize this man. >> the fbi said the mob would never have taken his body to this residential neighborhood too, many people could have noticed but if there was a burial here that escaped attention then, this discovery most certainly would not. i'm emily schmidt reporting. >> police say the soil sample results should be available by late monday, but they are adding that digging up, if it didn't
7:33am
turn up any bones or body parts so far. the people that owned the property moved in after the alleged burial. there have been other potential leads over the years and searchs for hoffa in the past with no success. >> the highway project is under way in l.a. this morning. called the busiest freeway in america, ten miles of the 405 are shut down for the weekend to work on the car pool lane, the bridges and the ramps. one of the goals is to create the longest car pool lane, 73 miles. 405 is a major road way connecting the san fernando valley and the airport. officials have been urging people to stay off the roads. >> maybe today they can go get a free cup of coffee. it is national coffee day. what a better way to celebrate than with free cups of coffee. the christie cream doughnut shops and mcdonald's are giving away free coffee. 62% of workers drink two or more cups of coffee a day.

7:38am
50s, primarily for highs here. 55, 51, 50. primarily the blue shades, oakland down to 41. that's that cooler air coming in. still a few scattered clouds around. down in the carolinas. there's a front. moved to finally move to the south and east of us. stalled across pennsylvania for a couple days which is why we had that lingering rain chance. making a little progress. that will allow some of the dry air to combust. disturbance out of canada. that will move down to the great lakes. this low that's over new england kind of rotates. that will bring us closer. by sunday evening this may be close enough. we'll pick up some clouds and maybe a sprinkle or shower. out in the western pacific it's the hurricane season or fie foon season out there. we have a super typhoon which passed over okinawa with winds
7:39am
over 150 miles an hour. 180 so gusts that high. now moving northeast. looks like it may pass here or just to the east of tokyo. winds this morning are 150 miles an hour. that's a category two storm. up there they call them super typhoons. gusts to 85 miles an hour. okay. here's our forecast. nothing tropical, really. humidity goes down. 74. the high today. partly cloudy skies. less humid. that's the key. red sox/o's game tonight at camden yards. 7:00 or just after that game time. dry conditions. assuming the game doesn't go in to 15 innings, temperatures will be closer to 60 and still dry. it's a good forecast for baseball tonight. insta weather forecast shows by early sunday, we'll pick up a few clouds. here's that disturbance to the north. up in the great lakes. by the end of the day sunday we may introduce a sprinkle chance
7:40am
in the forecast. doesn't look like significant. more significant chances monday, tuesday over the weekend. basically partly cloudy skies with that slight chance of rain at the end of the day sunday. temperatures this weekend will be in the low 70s. liver cancer is common in many countries, but cases haven't been seen often in the united states until recently. now the rate of liver cancer in america is growing np a recent study, researchers discovered a vitamin may lower the risk. donna hamilton has this morning's woman's doctor. >> a few months ago bonnie kirby wu diagnosed with liver cancer after she noticed her midsection was swollen. >> i was so bloated. i looked like a bull frog. from there they found that i needed to be drained and that i had three spots, or four spots on my liver. >> we'll see how much that is on
7:41am
the mri. >> doctors say it is prevalent world wide but numbers are increasing dramatically in the united states. the fight against liver cancer, a recent chinese study looked at vitamin e and liver cancer risk after following thousands of men and women for several years. >> they found none of them developed liver cancer, but they were trying to correlate the intake of vitamin e with the risk of liver cancer. they found those people who developed liver cancer had much lower dietary intake of vitamin e. >> at mercy medical center, kelly o'connor said vitamin e is found in many healthy foods. >> so vitamin e is pretty easy to find in things like almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, vegetables like spinach, broccoli, tomat s tomatoes. >> but the stud d didn't say how much vitamin e the participants
7:42am
took. >> i think it would be premature to advice people to buy vitamin e supplements in order to protect themselves from liver cancer. >> it's probably best to check with your doctor first and try to get your vitamin e from food not supplements. if you take just a multivitamin chances are you're getting it in there already. >> donna hamilton, wbal tv news. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> tell me how reliable is this. >> well, the study is quite reliable. very large number of patients. he followed them for almost 11 years. the aim of the study was not directed towards liver cancer. it was directed towards deciding whether dietary intake of vitamins would affect the incidence of cancer and various
7:43am
different cancers. it was an observation study. they did not actually give patients vitamin e or not give them vitamin e to compare where liver cancer increased or decreased in one group or toer this. in the sense that observational studies, this is a very good study. it provides a fairly long term follow-up and a large number of patients. in terms of liver cancer it's also useful because liver cancer is much more common in the far east and china. it is the second most form of cancer. >> why? >> from the time it is mostly buftz prefsh lens of hepatitis b infections which is common there, much more common than it is in the united states. united states hepatitis c tends to be a lot more common than b. hepatitis b is now listed as a carcinogen, same as cigarette smoke and tobacco is for lung cancer. in that sense study gives us useful information about dietary
7:44am
intakes of vitamin e and its impact on liver cancer. but what it does not tell us is that vitamin e supplements will help, will prevent you from developing liver cancer in the future. that remains to be seen. we had a u.s. study that did the same intervention giving patients vitamin e and testing their indense of cancer. looking specifically at processed cancer. it did not show change. >> i always heard that vitamin e is fat soluble. it's something that your body stores. so that's something to consider. >> exactly. that's correct. and because of that, you cannot take excess amounts of vitamin e. it can be toxic. just like vitamin a and d are beneficial but in excess amounts are toxic. >> thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you. september is national chicken month.
